The latest refresh, with Intel® Core™ i5 vPro™ processors, Intel® Solid State Drives (Intel® SSDs), and Microsoft Windows* 7, provides “drastically better” performance and productivity, and will generate significant cost savings, according to Kirk Halliday, manager of Grant Thornton LLP’s Enterprise Systems Management Group.
